President Barack Obama turned out to be so emotional that tears in the middle of his speech, when the president from the Democratic Party is usually always looks calm, firm and fierce on the podium.
This happened when he spoke to thank the team and the team’s successful campaign supporters at his campaign headquarters in Chicago, a day after voting on Tuesday (06/11/2012). As seen in the videos uploaded on YouTube by an account on the official campaign website, BarackObama.com, tears visible on his cheek melts the president who spoke at his campaign office, in the presence of all support staff. The team leader campaign strategist, David Axelrod and campaign manager Jim Messina is also seen standing in front, a few meters to the left of the president.
“I tried to imagine what I am at age all of you, when I first moved to Chicago when I am 25 years, and I only had a vague shadow about what can I do to make a change because I did not know what to do because I do not have the resources, “he explained. “When I was here and saw you all, what you think is real is not the same to me because you are all so much better than me when I was younger in many ways – you are smarter, more organized you are, you are more effective,” he said.
“Even before the results [of voting] last night, I felt what I strive for in this campaign is successful because thanks to you all what I did this was so important. I’m really proud of, and I’m really proud of you all,” Obama said. When he made it his voice began to tremble and then Obama had to be silent for a moment as tears began to flow from his eyes. The campaign staff was clapped.
“I am very confident that you all will be doing amazing things in your life all. You will all do great things,” he added later. “The journey you are just starting out, you are all just starting and whatever goodness we will do over the next four years would be comparable to what you all accomplished in the decades afterward. This is the source of my hope,” he added.
